My Bride isn't a gardener. She enjoys the flowers and such I plant. She leaves me to do my thing. It's worked for 49 years....can't beat that.

Do you want a nursery or you do off them to a distributor or what do you do with them

Jack  here is an arial from about 10 years ago.
The end greenhouse with the three black dots is now twice as long..  This was taken in the fall and you can still see a lot of mums out in the mum field...

We do love our flower gardens. Best part is that as time goes by I plant more perennials and there's less to do with the existing. Always something new to think about though.

I've converted to watering in the morning. But then, I have the time.

I wish I lived closer to Dom. I hate buying flowers from Lowes and Walmart. The nurseries near by are pretty outrageous for what they sell.

My potatoes are starting to droop over. They're about 30" tall now. I've  cut back on watering them so they harden up before I start digging. Probably wait till the end of July to harvest. Then I'll get some beans, Brussels sprouts and maybe some carrots in those beds for fall.

Garlic is really close now. Next week I'd say.

Gotta wait till my resident bunny gets big enough that it can't get through the fence. There's a bunch of rabbits around this year. I might have to run some chicken wire or plastic fencing around the bottom 2' of the garden to keep them out. Makes me wish I still had my beagle. She would have had a lot of fun with them.

Got garlic???
Pulled half of mine this morning

Potatoes

Asparagus, broccoli, tomatoes and one hot pepper plant

Broccoli

Moved my bags to the herb garden. Tomatoes and bush pickles

The other half of the garlic. Gonna leave that a couple more weeks

Tomatoes and a slicer cuke

Radishes in the trough planter. Put some spinach in this morning as well.

My petunias with upside down tomatoes. The tomatoes have blossoms.


I turned over the empty garlic bed and plan to put in green beans and a couple Brussels sprouts after I amend it with compost.

The garlic smells fantastic. It'll dry there for a couple weeks then move to the garage rafters for a couple more.

I still have garlic from last year.....can't have too much garlic!
